Deutsch: Kempraten ist seit der Römerzeit durchgehend besiedelt und zählt im Kanton St. Gallen zu den bedeutendsten archäologischen Fundstellen. Der vicus Centum Prata war eine bedeutende römische Siedlung, die vom 1. bis nachchristlichen 4. Jahrhundert zur Sicherung der Provinzgrenzen gedient haben dürfte.
English: Beginning in the 1st century A.D., the Roman vicus Centum Prata ("100 meadows", as of today Kempraten) has been an important Roman settlement in the Swiss Canton of St. Gallen, and was both a stage town on the intersection of the streets to Zürich (Latin Turicum), Winterthur (Vitudurum) via Irgenhausen (Irgenhausen Castrum) and to Chur (Curia Rhaetorum) to Rome's alpine route. Centum prata was also an economic center for the surrounding area. It measured about 300 meters form north to south and 200 meters from west to east, including massive stone buildings, half-timbered and simple wooden houses. At Kempraten's Zürichsee bay, the Roman transshipment harbour for goods was located that have been transported on the Roman streets, on the wooden bridge from Rapperswil to Hurden and on the waterway Obersee-Walensee.
